Island City City Council to tackle trucking company dispute, gather more info

ISLAND CITY — The long-running dispute involving a trucking company situated in a residential neighborhood is back in the hands of the Island City City Council. 

A hearing by the council on the issue is set for 7 p.m., Aug. 25. The hearing will represent the latest chapter in the saga of the case of Jon Fregulia’s trucking company, Oregon Trail Transport, which was granted a permit to operate in a residential zone with a home occupation permit in December 2010.

The evidentiary hearing, which will give supporters and opponents the chance to submit any new evidence regarding the case, will be held at the Island City City Hall.

Debra and Scott Stevens of Island City have battled the presence of Fregulia’s trucking company, which is next door to their Buchanan Lane home, for years.
